Curious to find out more about Rema’s ‘switching game’, the Lagos-based freelance filmmaker and YouTuber asked: “How do you know when to make a switch?

Rema explained whenever the feeling of depression sets in, it means his mindset and entire being is craving for a change as it is no longer comfortable with its current state.

He said:

Depression! There are sometimes you just like…in a week, everything is the same. It’s the same routine. It’s the same mood. So, that’s when you know that there’s an ish.

So, once you get depressed, it means like your skin, soul is not comfortable in that skin, mindset; that mind frame.”
